Handel Choir
Of Baltimore

Handel Choir of Baltimore is a critically acclaimed choral ensemble that presents yearly performances of Handel’s Messiah with the Handel Period Instrument Orchestra, as well as other major choral and choral-orchestral works. Our 86th season showcases a wide range of music and performances throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

2020 ~ 2021

Yes, we are still singing: in our homes and on our phones, offering our music to Baltimore however we safely can. Join us on select Mondays for sight-singing practice, sing-alongs of choral masterworks, and special interpretive visits from guest conductors. As both you and we are  largely confined to our homes, our Free Fall Baltimore Online Concert celebrates the beauties of home: from our personal homes to our shared American home. In December, our Messiah: Live Online! invites you to enjoy our long-standing Christmas season crowd-pleaser in the safety of your home, as we weave together live soloists and chamber orchestra with recorded choristers.
Like you, we are juggling plans for spring activities, with online and in person concerts being prepared for: 
February 27 and April 242021.
